EC's...a year and a half..just put down 2 years?

<p>i joined a club in my school at the beginning of 11th grade. By october of senior year, i need participate in a required event. The only problem is that it costs too much money and my parents refuse to pay for it.</p>

<p>Since i still will be in the club until october-november, can i just put that i did it the whole 2 years? On the applications, it justs says list the grades you participated in the EC and the hourse/week. so there is no way i can say i didn it 1.5 years out of 2 years.</p>

<p>If i do say i did in 11th and 12th grade( even tho only the beginning of 12th grade), would that be considered lying?</p>

<p>You should be ok.</p>

<p>but it wont benefit u any</p>

<p>I say no.</p>

<p>You claim it's 1.5 years, which would be stretching it (but alright by my opinion), but it's clearly not.</p>

<p>If you're out of the club by November, you've only been in it for 2 months. 2 months out of a possible 9 (or 8) does not qualify as a year at all.</p>

<p>so. .</p>

<p>It's nice to see someone posting here who wants to be honest about ECs.</p>

<p>Saying 11th and 12th grade is fine, but as someone said, whether you were in it a half year or a full year won't matter to admissions officers. In general, club members don't factor in that much to admissions to the top colleges, which are virtually the only ones that factor ECs into admissions. Most other colleges factor ECs only for merit aid at most.</p>

<p>Of course, the exception is athletics. Star football players particularly are in big demand.</p>
